Lyrics

Distinguished guests Brothers and sisters Ladies and gentleman Friends and enemies Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out White, black, red, brown, yellow It doesn't make any difference what color you are The only thing power respects, is power They take one little word out of what you say, ignore all the rest And then begin to magnify it all over the world to make you look like what you actually aren't What I say might sound like I'm stirring up trouble But it's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth It's the truth We don't care who likes it or not As long as we know it's the truth No, we need either this or that, this or that If you wrong you're wrong and if you're right you're right There will be no skulduggery, no flim-flam No compromise, no sell out, no controlled show Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out You can't deny that You might not like my saying it, but you can't deny it! If you're afraid to tell the truth Why you don't even deserve freedom! You can't say that you're not going to have an explosion And you leave the condition And as long as those ingredients explosive ingredients remain then you are going to have the potential for explosion on your hands Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out Malcolm X No sell out I'm not the kind of person who'd come here to say what you'd like! I've got a plate in front of me but nothing is on it Uh, because all of us are sitting at the same table are all of us diners I'm not a diner until you let me dine Then I become a diner I was in a house last night that was bombed, my own It isn't something that made me lose confidence in what I am doing Brothers and sisters friends And I see some enemies
